Objective

Currently, the GMES user community is fragmented and incoherent, and, thus, unable to issue common and consolidated statements. GNU intends to initiate a structuring of the GMES demand side by setting up an independent platform that will become the focal point and mouthpiece of European GMES user needs, and, likewise, will foster a systematic dialogue between the stakeholder communities.

GNU will add value to the various GMES related projects in that it will enable a transfer of practices and solutions, and provide measures for taking advantage of synergies and for avoiding overlaps. The project will, on the one hand, work out guidelines for effective user-provider interaction and collaboration modes, and, on the other hand, contribute to achieving harmonised and prioritised user requirements and to identifying gaps in current data delivery. GNU will analyze the GMES stakeholder landscape and investigate how GMES affects different stakeholder categories.
